Trieste Science & the City

Trieste Science & the City is a series of public conferences on hot topics in Science. Presented by the Director-General, the events take place in a theatre in the centre of town and are open to the general public. Admission is free. The panel comprises special guests who are experts in their respective field in the Life Sciences. Topics open to debate span from GMOs to Frontier Genetics. The events are in Italian.

The series began in 2013 and has just concluded its 4th edition. The live events are filmed by the Rai Italian national radio and television, thereby reaching a vast audience world-wide and constituting a model that champions science communication in the post-truth age; an activity integral to the mission of the ICGEB. The events can be downloaded for viewing from here.
